1 Japanese Pattern Books:Easy cute straight sewing (Dresses) 1 1.000 1.500 A beach dress of linen with gold mylar (to match the sandals) from a Japanese pattern book, inspired by 1920's Schiaparelli Greek Revival dresses (pictured) and Finnish Marimekko 60s/Megan from Mad Men toga/shifts, finished with French seams (in the picture with the scissors) to complete the multi-culti gumbo. 5/15/13 10:31 PM
2 Other:1930s Vionnet Scarf (Accessories) 1 1.000 1.500 This is a bias-cut linen scarf woven with gold-colored mylar (to go with the gold sandals; unfortunately the gold highlights don't show in the pictures). The design is by Madeleine Vionnet, whose early 20th century fashions were based on Roman togas and bias cuts. I thought the sandals would work on me in Boston worn with my urban-grrl black clothes and this awesome retro-couture scarf. Figuring out the pattern was half the fun, as I took the instructions from Betty Kirke's famous 1980s book "Vionnet" and a Japanese Bunka Fashion School book that had Kirke's patterns on a grid. The picture on the lower left shows the scarf untied, and the picture on the lower right shows the tricky manuever required to flip the bow. I'm modelling the scarf with my uber-chic Roman-inspired Crocs. Maybe I'll spring for the sandals next. 5/9/13 2:55 PM
